This place is a pleasant surprise. Kind of hidden but worth looking for. I had the soft shell crab appetizer and it was a large portion. Then I had the tempura plate and it was also good but a little greasy. Nice outside eating area.

We were recently brought to Thai Spice by friends who have been going there for years. Food is absolutely outstanding - probably the best Thai food I've eaten! The cucumber/tomato salad as a starter was phenomenal. All the food is very fresh. The owner is very accommodating and spoke with us to find out what we liked and made sure... More

I've been eating at this restaurant since 1998 or even earlier and hands down, no matter where you travel or what restaurant you go to, you're not going to find a better pad thai. I travel with my family a lot and we tried Thai restaurants across the US, Canada and Europe and none came close. The cashew delight comes... More

We love Thai food and this one will rank among the best. Unfortunately we do not live in the Chicago area to be able to frequent Thai Spice on a regular basis. The owner, Anthony, is Austrian and runs the dining room, greeting you, taking your order, etc. And, he loves to talk and will (as time permits) be at... More

This restaurant brings the spice hot and heavy (made to order) with a super friendly proprietor and a very chill atmosphere. The menu prices might look a bit high for family style Asian food but it is well worth it and partially offset by the BYOB policy. Food is served family style and the portions are generous. My own travels... More

Thai food is ubiquitous in Chicago. There are scads of places where you can a decent Pad Thai. This place IS DIFFERENT (and, by different, I mean way better). On the menu, the prices seem steeper than what I was used to at Thai restaurants. But, it was so worth it. The flavors were fresh and complex. It was clear... More

We enjoyed some of the highest quality Thai food ever. The host, Anthony, made the experience amazing with his attention to details and personal attention to our experience. We would certainly go back to Thai Spice again!

I cannot say enough great things about the welcoming charm and positive attitude of the host. Unfortunately the food here seems geared more toward the "huge portions = good value" mentality is more geared towards the benefit of college schools than a fine palate. And the dinner prices are expensive for the quality. It's nice that the food is organic... More

After having great Thai food in several cities around the US, i was really disappointed with finding something in Chicago that was truly great sushi. That was until my wife and I found Thai Spice. Using trip advisor looking for something nearby that was very good, we opted for something near Loyola and found this restaurant which has traditional Japanese... More

We had never had authentic Thai food and decided to try this Thai restaurant near Loyola in Chicago based on reviews over Mother's Day weekend. So glad we did. Nothing special from the outside, but nice decor inside. The waitress was extremely helpful in explaining the menu and answering our numerous questions. We had potstickers, Thai Pad with chicken, Thai... More
